Wasps have confirmed that South African backline star Willie le Roux will be leaving the club at the end of the 2018/19 season, along with Bristol signing Nathan Hughes.

South Africa international Le Roux has played over 50 matches at the Premiership club and director of rugby Dai Young is sad to see him go.

"It's always disappointing to lose players of such quality but this is professional sport and there isn't much you can do about it. There are a number of factors that play a part in players' decisions to move on and unfortunately these guys have opted to move onto pastures new for 2019/20," he said.

"Willie joined Wasps at a time when he wasn't a part of the Springboks side and since making the move here, he has rediscovered his form and shown that he is a world-class player which in turn has seen him restored to the national side, going on to make over 50 appearances. We'd like to place our thanks on record to Willie for his great service to the club over the past two-and-a-half seasons."

On the impending departure of Hughes, Young added: "Nathan arrived from New Zealand's domestic scene and has risen to the top during his time at Wasps, going on to become an England international. It's a credit to the club that we've been able to help him realise his potential and although it's a blow to lose such a quality player, we wish him all the best."
